the voice of HAL 9000 is dead

He really can't do that now, Dave.

Sorry.  Totally iconic role, so even if I don't know any of his other work he deserves some respect.  I think he would have appreciated that chuckle, though.

Seems much of his work in the last 45 years was voiceover and narration, some early TV stuff but nothing much that rings a bell here.

Cheers and "yoink!" - not an encrypted video so easy to grab.  Giant PITA how so many YT videos now (esp music) are encrypted and just produce a 0 byte file with FF downloader extensions.

My current favourite cure for the pesky ones that do that is YouTube Y2Mate

ed - warning about that page:  probably an idea to use a popup blocker, don't download any of the other junk that gets offered up.

george bush senior, aged 94

 

hmmm.... r.i.p.

A saint compared to the current maniac.

I never minded him, the oddity was that he headed CIA for a whole year but it was the Agencies machinations that cooked the intel that led him as President into Desert Storm.

In the end it was a misadventure but also stopped too soon, for rather mysterious reasons that only emerged later.

RIP

Sondra Locke, aged 74 from cancer.  Actress and partner of Clint Eastwood for about 13 years.

Various roles but the ones I feel were most prominent were in Every Which Way But Loose, Any Which Way You Can and The Gauntlet.

Ahh bummer, Sondra and Penny ?

R.I.P. to both Ms. Locke and Ms Marshall. I admired you both in my earlier life and still do today.

Two women who really knew how to act

edit: I didn't read about Sondra's death in my news feed, and wiki has just told me that her death wasn't published till nearly a month later. How that little respite would've helped her husband and loved ones some is both touching and sane imo.

I remember him but by the late 70s it was mostly quick cameos and TV ads.

?

Said I didn't mind him, not that he was what he wanted to appear to be.

Then again any journo can muck-rake most anyone, doubt they could do the job...

I actually sort of worked for him during his very brief time as head of CIA.

Best you could say was he didn't rock the boat but in that period of the Agency perhaps he should have..

Barely knew he was there really, then again no one would have noticed me, but I wasn't DCIA.

Cheers

Vaguely recall her.

Clive Swift died yesterday, 81 I think. He had a lot of mostly support roles for many years but I suppose most would remember him as Hyacinth's long suffering husband in "Keeping Up Appearances." Played the role to perfection. Not a show I watched much but my mother was/is addicted to it. Makes two of the cast of that show I think, the actor who played Onslow, forget his name, died several years ago.

RIP
